The rise in rental prices in Spain is continuing, despite the Government’s initiative to extend the period during which the maximum increase of 2% applies. In November, rental prices rose again by 2.9% compared to October and by 5.9% in relation to the same month in 2021, with many corners of the country registering all-time highs. In this way, the average rental price in Spain now stands at 10.79 euros per month per square metre, according to data from Fotocasa’s Real Estate Index. This year-on-year increase also represents the ninth rise in a row in 2022.
